For the opposite role thatHermaea Olbia selects one of the brightest, most promising and most sought-after talents in national volleyball: coach Dino Guadalupi can count on him for the 2023/2024 season of Serie A2 Virginia Hadrian“blue”, born in 2004 from Club Italia.
Born on July 22, 2004 in Turin, the 196 centimeter tall Adriano took his first steps in the formation of Pino Torinese and then switched to Involley Piemonte, a formation with which he continued his growth trajectory for four seasons. Her talents have not gone unnoticed by Fenera Chieri, a top-flight club who signed her for the 2021/22 season and entrusted her with a key role in both the B2 second team and U18 squad. In the same season she also had the opportunity to participate in preparation and A1 training. Finally, last year Adriano played in the A2 with the colors of Club Italia (311 points in 32 games).
In addition, the new player Hermeina has been a regular with the Azzurro since 2018. Last summer he won gold with the U19 national team at the European Championships and at the Youth Olympics. He is currently facing college teams in Darfo Boardio in preparation for the U21 World Cup, which will be held in Mexico in mid-August.
“The decision to land in Olbia was influenced by the positive feedback – explains Adriano – The company was presented to me as very serious and cordial, accompanied by employees with ambitions and a zest for action. Beyond the “technical” reasons, I saw the choice of Olbia as an excellent challenge to achieve personal goals and to get out of the comfort zone, to be literally “off the continent” and therefore a new and stimulating reality. In terms of personal and team goals, I want to create a good feeling on the pitch, but also build a group that can help each other in difficult times. The decisive factor for the choice was the conversation with coach Guadalupi, because it gave me a lot of security and confidence in the project. Within the field, I try to instill a positive attitude even in the bad moments, and I don’t give in. I’m quite a shy person outside, but I know how to gain respect. I am aware that I will find a completely different environment than the one I come from, I can’t wait to get started with my team and the entire company!”
